Whoa.....SNAP!
It's kinda like the lot tree that broke at Camp4.
Those oaks are kinda time-bombey.
Thanks for the pics.

Anybody remember the tree at the top of the Cleft?

How many slings around that when it dove into the road?

Oaks are like that.

First pic: massive heart rot. The trunk is basically a tube of sound wood surrounding a rotten cavity.
It's actually amazing how long a tree like that will stand even through wind and winter. Very lucky it missed you all and didn't pull the leader off.

There is still a spooky and substantial portion of a dead detached tree guarding the exit to the summit of the Cleft (and a minor forest of PO guarding the start).

I remember that Cleft tree well, Tom.

From fearlessly sitting out on that big cantilevered limb up high, to walking up to it's shattered carcass on the Cookie road one morning.
